The old Missouri river occasion ally arousing from its sluggish course starts in to do things to the territory that forms the banks of the stream and when the water gets up there is something doing that re quires all the engineering skill of the states and the railroad compan Lies to combat. For years past the river has been determinedly attacking the east bank of ithe "river from Just below Council Bluffs to opposite this city and it has cost the federal government, the state of Iowa and the Burlington railroad a large sum of money to try and stay the progress of the river. In order to successfully defeat the ef forts of, the river to -cut Into the Iowa bank, large tralnloads of rock. willow mats and other rip rapping devices have been, used and it was thought that the stream was effec tively blocked from further' inroads on the land of Iowa. ' ; Last Sunday following the sud den raise in the Missouri river, two farmers from near old Pacific City, north of P. Junction, Gene 'Vinton and .II. B. Nilson, were out looking over the situation and to see how high the river had reached. They discovered that the river had suc cessfully undermined, a section of rip rap not faf from their home and had eaten away the rocks and dire that had formed the barrier to the progress of the river. This' had gone so far that a portion of the railroad tracks had been undermined. The two men notified William O'Neill and the Burlington station at Pa cific Junction was notified and mea sures at once taken to check the break. ' By 9:30 the railroad had several loads of rock on hand at the I break in . the levee and strenuou? work was expended in checking the break in the guarding wall. About fifty farmers in the vicinity of the break repsonded to the call and . as sisted in helping check the stream from doing further damage. The river expert of the railroad arrived. Monday and since then the river has been effectively checked. The watchman at the levee when he made his rounds at 3 o'clock Sun day did hot find any break at the levee and ' when the discovery was made by Vinton and Nilson it was fully twenty feet under the railroad track and when they returned after arousing the neighborhood the gap had extended for 100 feet. not been found so ; soon break and promptly looked after it would have ' undoubtedly have cut clear through, the levee and flooded the country for miles around.
